Cattle first came to Australia on the First Fleet in 1788. The cattle did poorly in the tough Australian conditions so different breeds from Europe, including Shorthorn and Hereford, were transported to Australia to improve quality. The majority of beef cattle in Australia are low in fat but high in iron which promotes strong and healthy young people.
Judging will commence at 9am Wednesday 20 October. Come along and see if you can pick a winner!
Did you know a cow has to drink 25 litres of water to produce 1 litre of milk and that unprocessed milk contains 87% water, 5% sugar, 4.5% fat and 3.5% protein?
